9:00am
in the devil's eye to know you are alive. mbg. lottery ticket . i a lot of america stocks coming back. nbg will come back. >> that is it the cost -- i will be back at noon east other than time. have a great time everyone. >> hello everyone. at this hour we are following breaking news out of kansas city, missouri a 25 year old nfl player was involved in two shootings. the nfl stadium is in lock down. we'll go live to elizabeth. >> yeah, uma, we know that 25 year old kansas city chiefs player died of a self inflected gunshot. police have not released the name because the incident is
9:01am
under investigation. they do say the shootings are connected and happened within five miles was each other. first neighborhood in kansas city . the second shooting happened in the teams training facility near the stadium which is why the facility was on lock down and continues to be on lock down. here is a spokesperson from the police department. listen. >> when we arrived, a lady came out and said her daughter was shot by her boyfriend several times inside of the residence. we got a call in regard to the person in the parking lot with a handgun. the black man talked to the coaches out in the parking lot and as officers pulled up and they heard the gunshot and the individual took his own life. >> we have heard from the kansas city chiefs team. they have released a statement. we can confirm there was an incident in arrow head earlier
9:02am
this morning, we are cooperating with the authorities in the investigation. uma, it happened around 8:00 a.m. . the chiefs are scheduled to host the carolina panthers tomorrow. >> such a sad story. thank you very much. >> thanks. turning to political news. house gop leader john boehner said we are going no where and wake up washington the count reap is about to go over the fiscal cliff. republicans are urging the republicans to stand against the tax increase. we are 30 days from going over the fiscal cliff . both sides are pointing fingers and blaming each one for the stalemate. but the real losers is you and me, the american taxpayer if
9:03am
the taxpayers can't come to a compromise. steve has more on the part of the grid lock. >> hi, uma. one month away from the critical deadline and there appears to be very little movement to a deal. the president is using the bully pulpit and appeal to the american people and pushing to extend the bush era tax cuts but those making $250,000. a year. democrats want high tax rates for the wealthy. the president stressed the urgency of the situation in the radio address. >> if congress does nothing. every family will see the income taxes go up in the beginning of next year. a family of four will see income taxes rise $2200. we can't let that happen.
9:04am
our families can't afford it and neither can our economy. >> but republicans say the president should quit his campaign mode and come home and take care of business. the latest round of political maneuvering involves pressure from democrats to schedule a vote on the senate plan to extend middle class cuts. but republicans say let's see spending cuts first. >> we need to hear they are willing to make spending cuts now. not promises in the future . the tidal waves comingalt us is social security and medicare and of course, the new health care law of the presidents which is unaffordable and unworkable. >> nancy peel peel calling on speaker boehner to bring it to the floor or she will launch a move to force a vote. boehner is not likely to buckle and pelosi's
9:05am
maneuvering will not do much either. speaker boehner said we are at a stalemate. pat buchanan is joining us in the studio. >> thank you. >> i am glad to have you here. do you think that the president wants to have any real negotiation or is it a show to say if republicans stand up to him, he can accuse them of holding up the process, blame them for high taxes and then he continues on with his legacy. >> i think what the president believes he has a whip hand and he won seats in the house and senate and he can dictate to the republican party. i think what we saw uma, yesterday a act of real contempt to the republicans and the offer that was made. 1.6 trillion in new taxs and 50 billion in stimulus spending the and the republicans made a semifatal error. they indicated we'll give on
9:06am
taxes and we give up our virtue and beliefs, but it is a question of how much we will give. the republicans should walk out of the talks with the president of the united states and terminate them and go back to the hill and pass an extension of the bush tax cuts and pay roll tax cuts and that would prevent us off of the fiscal cliff and tell harry reid do what you want and this is where why are. republicans have made a mistake by indicating they would go along with $800 billion in taxes and now you have negotiating. and why did the republicans caved in the pressure and said they would accept a tax hike. >> that's the point. republicans indicated they are far more afraid of going over the cliff than the democrats. bark obama said i am ready to go off of the cliff unless you give me x, yand z . that's where the republicans made a mistake. >> if they pass and extend all of the tax cuts and send them
9:07am
over to the senate, they have done their job . if why go over the cliff then, it will be because of the president of the united states. it will be his economy. it will be his presidency on the line and also the country. if barak obama believes in the clinton tax cuts, let them go back into affect for the entire country and see if the country believes they are good for america. >> the president is campaign acting like he received a anytime percent man date when he only received half. what impact is this having on the psyche of the gop. >> it is affecting the psyche of the president. he's act being like he did win a huge victory . he did win a substitute victory and what happened to the republicans is, they are fearful of all of these taxes going up they are trying to a bargain in good faith to give away something and then say if you will give us something and make us look good.
9:08am
don't humiliate us. the democrats are humiliating the republican party in making that offer . i think their own dignity and principles and beliefs, what republicans ought to say is, we think that extending the tax cuts pay roll and bush tax cuts is good for economy and america and consistent with our principles and blives and you are not going to put a gun to our head and testimony us to give up all of these things and we'll vote these things and these will prevent us from going off the cliff if you buy off. mr. president, you can take us off of the cliff butul will be the one to do it. >> do you think there is it a political will to have those republicans say no, we'll walk away and put it to a vote in the house over the clinton era. >> i don't know where the republican leadership n the republican caucus people are saying look, let's not give up the principles.
9:09am
the president won but why ought to stand what we believe in . whether mr. boehner and cantor and mr. mccarty of the republican leadership whether they are under pressure from contractors to say we got to do a deal. once you walk in to a negotiation. you are disadvantage. and that is it visible for the democratings . what the democrats are doing and i might have done it when i was younger grab the republicans by the head and say we will rub your noses and rub it in there for a while and for their own dignity >> what does this have to do with the fact that the republican party is it going through soul searching after the election and trying to find perhaps a way to remake itself. to be more appealing to the constitients. >> i think the republican party is in a defining moment.
9:10am
some say we have to give up on immigration that is not helping with hispanics and we can't have the social issues going on. but one thing that holds the party together and brings us all together. et cetera, is the fact that we stand for smaller government and less taxes. we believe the private sector is the way to go. we are the party of the private sector and bark obama leads the party of government and we ought to stand for our principles and beliefs. there is a revolutionary slogan. the worse the better. you want to take us over the cliff, president obama take us over and see if the american people like it if that is what they want, you ought to sit in the oval office. if not we'll have it out in 2014. >> thank you for your insight. >> it is it a pleasure. >> chris walalce will get a scoop. he will be talking with the
9:11am
man the white house made the point pressure . treasure secretary tim geithner and exclusive with yawn boehner. -- john boehner. >> in egypt thousands of os was muhammad morsi have gathered the the muslim brotherhood who helped tod rally to grant mursey sweeping powers . joining us now with the fall out following the un vote gill hoffman. thank you for joining us today. what impact do you think that the un vote will have to get a
9:12am
palestine state established? >> no impact whatsoever. they were granted nonmember status as observers in the united nations that. changes nothing on the grounds for the palestinian people . israel buss -- ambassador to the un said it goes through negotiations in jerusalem and ramallah and not new york. >> what is the reaction for the people of israel and whether it would lead to meaningful negotiations? >> i think they are disappointed that the palestinians instead of coming to the table turned to the community and united nations where they have an obvious majority. it doesn't mean anything . no operative power. palestinians, have done everything but sit down with israel since august 30th, 2008. they haven't responded to the offer.
9:13am
people of israel want peace and hopefully the palestinian people do. they need leadership to deliver it to them. >> obviously the prime minister and hillary clinton expressed disappointment in the un action. this will only delay the lasting talks over peace. absolutely. let palestinians have said that they want to come to the table. we have waited four years for them to come . especially after the election we'll have in israel. netanyahu will be in a place to make concessions that he hasn't made in the past. but not to hurt israel security. and what about the open security in the last several weeks with the tensions over gaza. we saw there palestinians care
9:14am
about that was part of the jordan and egypt. they are firing rockets at israel civilians in sougern israel . that made israelies unite. they are trying to get the entire state of israel and wipe us off of the map. when the pime of israel unite that strengthens our hold over the land of israel. it doesn't make israelies want to make concessions soon. >> in terms of the symbolism of the vote in the un, do you think that this is going to be a problem going forward as negotiations continue to have this two-state solution? >> it certainly doesn't create a good atmosphere. netanyahu was compelled to respond to the un vote by announcing the security cabinet of israel voted on friday to build in the west
9:15am
bank and in jerusalem and to connect jerusalem to the jewish community and settlements and northeast of the jerusalem . that is something that the palestinians will not like. both sides taking steps will not helps and bilateral. >>reporter: stakes remain high and thank you for joining us with your thoughtos the matter. we'll check back with you as the process continues. >> north corey - korea officials will report that a rocket will carry an observation satellite. this is a following a fail would launch back in april. the state department said the launch would be a highly provocative act that threatens peace and security in the region. falling rocks and mudslides as a third storm descends on
